Clarke not open to Olsson offers

Published Add your comment

West Brom head coach Steve Clarke insists central defender Jonas Olsson is "not for sale" after rejecting a bid - believed to be £5 million - from QPR.

But Clarke admitted there is a buy-out clause in Olsson's contract which could be activated this summer by one of six clubs he has stipulated in his terms. Clarke claims Olsson is happy to remain with the Baggies - at least in the short term - after reports that he is keen to be based in London for family reasons.

The former Chelsea number two said he will not welcome any new bids for the 29-year-old player during the remainder of the current transfer window. Clarke said: "I can confirm a bid has been turned down and I don't encourage anymore bids because Jonas is not sale."
